The work Isaiah Thomas has been putting in with the Boston Celtics this season is turning heads all over the NBA, and that includes back-to-back MVP Stephen Curry.
The Golden State Warriors star saw a lot more of Thomas when the 5-foot-9 point guard played for the Sacramento Kings for his first three NBA seasons, but Thomas has been a star since moving to Boston. The 28-year-old will play in his second straight All-Star Game on Sunday after putting up 29.9 points per game and 6.3 assists to go with his fourth-quarter heroics.
And Curry has taken notice.
That’s some high praise coming from one of the best players in the league.
Thomas is a reserve for Sunday’s game — the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Kyrie Irving won the starting point guard job — but plenty of eyes will be on him when the Eastern Conference faces the West.
